Incorporating Your BC Company

Are you planning to set up a new company?

For the past decade, the incorporation lawyers at Patrola Law have formed hundreds of successful incorporations for new startups, growing entrepreneurs and small businesses across BC.

That means providing you with practical, real-world experience to ensure that your company is legally set up right the first time to maximize incorporation benefits and strategically position your business for long term growth.

Benefits of Incorporating

  • The protection of personal assets from the claims of creditors or lawsuits
  • Enable owners of business to transfer their ownership in a company more easily to others
  • Lower corporate tax rates because corporations are taxed separately from their owners.

What Does the Incorporation Process Entail?

Step 1: Choosing a Corporate Name

Step 2: Preparing the documents

Step 3: Filing the Incorporation Application

Why Incorporating Without a Lawyer is a BAD Idea

First off, yes there are resources available online where you can learn to incorporate yourself. We understand that startups need to save money, but the last thing you need to be frugal with is setting up your business structure.

There's a common misconception that incorporation is a one-time transaction. You set it and forget it. It's definitely not.

If your incorporation isn't properly executed from the beginning, mistakes that happen down the road can come back to hurt your business. 

Lawyers are able to assist you with multiple legal facets of your business during and after incorporation:

1. Create and maintain corporate organizational documents required by the Business Corporations Act

2. Drafting, negotiation, and advising on important contracts and agreements

3. Advise and resolve any legal issues that may arise in the future

When you hire an incorporation lawyer, you get the peace of mind knowing that your company stands on a solid legal foundation as your business grows.

What Our Incorporation Clients Are Saying


Patrola Law Corporation is great business law firm who were very efficient in supporting me with BC corporation for a new renovation company. The business lawyer was professional and took time to connect with me firstly through telephone conversation and then met with me to ensure that was clear in regards to procedures for incorporation. The process went through smoothly I had to do nothing but await all of my business papers.  Fees were comparative to most BC law firms here in Surrey.
